    It's more about general system design ideas and not specific Amazon designs. Your interview might phrase it as a unique Amazon question, but it will be solvable by standard design practices.

    Study up on API design, SOA, relational dbs vs nosql, CAP thereom, requirements analysis, etc, etc, etc. Be able to understand and articulate tradeoffs. Ask clarifying questions, and take hints from the interviewer. Don't worry about initially asking too many questions, if you get off track they will gently encourage you to focus on something in particular. Look out for these moments and be receptive to them.

    Here is the most valuable resource I found. It structures tons of learnings and links to a wealth of resources. Find the areas you are rusty on and dive in.

    Doomed. Need a career reboot. Uber rescinded my offer. Previously wasted a lot of time and effort at Alexa voice shopping.

    Go to a childcare center during Lego playtime. Observe and learn system design and architecture at Amazon.

    Join Amazon and read the wikis. Why do you want to study them?
